As everything mixes together over a fire we might as well watch the materials start to entwine and grope each other. That's the golden moment: carefully laid plans, happy mistakes and baffling mishaps slowly cook down to their essence, reducing in hopes of finding some unspoken meaning. New mixtures tint and coil and make something never seen before and it's very personal. But there's something in the mixture, something in how it starts to mix that extends beyond itself and attracts outside eyes; it becomes social.


In that exciting state of transformation everything is possible. 3D eyes dangle, daubs of oily paint build watery serpents, marks double as heroes decorated with portraiture, mud picks shape, wings flutter at key strokes, stories sliced wide open drop into view, and all these things jabber at each other. This is the moment when things get interesting. The smoke clears. We scrape all the usable leftovers into a bowl. We must sweep the inside out before we start again fresh.
